The Makita® 12" Guide Bar is a commercial guide bar. It has a laminated body and is designed for use with low profile chains for increased cutting efficiency. The slim contour provides less weight and increased maneuverability. The small radius sprocket nose reduces the potential for kickback compared to standard-size noses. A narrow kerf helps the saw chain move through cuts faster than a standard kerf. It is ideal for use with Makita® LXT® Cordless Chain Saws (XCU02, XCU03, XCU04, XCU07, XCU08, and XCU09, sold separately), Gas Chain Saws (EA3200SRBB, EA3201SRBB, EA3500SRDB, EA3601FRDB, and EA4300FRDB, sold separately), and Corded Chain Saws (UC3551A and UC4051A, sold separately).
